This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I would like to request copies of all public records, documents, and public and private emails containing official information that mention the financial agreement between the city of New Orleans, Louisiana (and/or its representatives) with the ABC reality series “The Bachelor,” specifically, how much the city paid ABC to be featured on the program during its 21st season.
In order to help you assess my fee, you should know that I am a representative of the news media — I am a reporter with New York Magazine (www.nymag.com). This request is made as part of news gathering activity and not for commercial use. I request a waiver of all fees for this request. Disclosure of the requested information to me is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute significantly to public understanding of the operations or activities of the city and is not primarily in my commercial interest. If you have any questions regarding this request, please contact me at email@example.com.
Thank you for considering my request.
My best, Devon Ivie
